I Won't Lose Control

Bill Osofsky was nice enough to send us one of his lyrics to see what we could cook up. Not being fans of modern country we decided to go with a country swing thing (not in vogue now but I DON'T CARE smile )

floyd jane and Tom (tommyad) were kind enough to put up with my arrangement/production (I'm still trying to get this electric/drums country thang down) and provide a fine harmony vocal and the cooking guitar solo, respectively.

The RT's are:
Bass - 1848
Guitar Rhythm 1 - 967
Guitar Rhythm 2 - 959
Drums N'ville Swing 8th's
Steel Rhythm - 617
Steel Solo - 1504
Fiddle Rhythm - 1117
Fiddle Lead - 1873

Thanks for taking the time to check it out and comments are most welcome!

WOW. That is simply gorgeous. What a great collaboration with each person adding a part to make the whole thing outstanding. The lyric is such fun and that guitar solo..man. As usual, beautifully sung and produced. Well done you lot!

Kool tune..... like a Texas swing two step with some crunch guitars going on in the background.

Yep, they don't make-um like that anymore.

I love you're comment about not caring if your in vogue. Trends come and trends go but good is always....just good!! This is really nice work! The lyricist is a fine craftsman--concise, simple lines that say a lot and paint a great picture. Great work again! Take care. Greg

A great reproduction of the era and style. Precise and focused lyrics and an excellent mix. Love the vocal and harmonies and the vocal delivery of the last line. Cheers.

Thank Herb. I guess George Strait carried out the flag on this genre.

Bud & Janice, Thanks for letting be a small part of this one. I loved it from the moment I heard it. My favorite part besides the lyrics and Janice's vocal is the way the bass alternates between the 1,5 in the verses and the walking pattern in the choruses. It put the swang in this thang. Tom

Well guys, I agree that country swing might not be in vogue, but also agree that good stuff is good stuff, and that, never goes out of stile, it's simply good! and this collab is no exception. Congratulations!

Hey everyone involved with this ...

Great collab by all involved. I've known Bill Osofsky for about 7 or 8 years and I can vouch that he's as nice in person as he is on the various forums he frequents. He's a true gentleman and a terrific lyricist!

I hear a lot of "Asleep At The Wheel" in this one. Now don't get me wrong, Janice is a "WHOLE LOT" prettier than Ray Benson! But she has that same Country Swing in her voice.

Very nice job by all concerned. It's amazing how we can collab with folks from all over the globe, almost as though they're in the next room.

Loved our listen!

Alan and Di

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
